Join us for Lauhala Hatband with Pua Medina.
Learn to weave a hatband for your pāpale (crownless hat)! This hatband will be an adjustable style, so it can easily be made to fit your own hat or be given as a gift for someone special!
In this class Pua will talk about the use of lauhala and demonstrate how the leaves are prepared for weaving. You will learn to weave a basic pattern using materials prepared by Pua, and finish with a beautiful hatband.
Pua is a lifelong student of the traditional arts and crafts of Hawaiʻi. She began weaving lauhala over 30 years ago, and loves sharing her technique and joy with others.
There will be a $35 supply fee payable to the instructor which includes all materials and tools needed to complete one hatband.
What to Bring:
- $35 supply fee
- Water in your personal flask to stay hydrated
- Glasses if you need them
- Dress comfortably
